Winter Soaps: Part 3

November 15, 2017

Round 3!

Reindeer Poo

This soap was really popular last year, so I brought it back this year.  I love the color. The name makes me smile.  You have to have a sense of humor obviously!  It’s just cute and fun!

Santa’s Tree Farm

The tiger strip didn’t quite go perfectly. The soap started to get a little thick on my and I wish I’d had a bit more green, but it still looks nice and smell lovely.

Santa’s Belt (aka: Apple Cinnamon)

This soap was a boat load of work.  I really like how it turned out and I learned a lot while making it. I know I can make it look even cleaner next year.  Every time I see this soap I can’t help but smile.

Sugar Plum Fairy

I’ve been having some fun playing around with different ways to achieve swirls.  I like the results I ended up with in this soap!

Winter Soaps: Part 2

November 10, 2017

Round 2!

Gingersnap & Pumpkin

So, the fragrance really discolored this soap. I expected to get discoloration, just not quite this much.  Still looks fine, and smells good, but the perfectionist in me…

Stink, Stank, Stunk (aka: Apples & Clover)

The Grinch soap! I know if you’re on my FB page you’ve seen this soap about a million times now. And you know how much I’m absolutely in love with this soap.  There’s gonna be a bar in my shower very shortly!

Peppermint Fluff

I did my standard Peppermint soap this year, but I added this one too.  It’s a sweeter, less intense peppermint.  The problem with the fragrance is the amount of vanilla in it. I knew it would alter the color and worked my design around it. I do like how it ultimately turned out.

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Another vanilla heavy fragrance that I worked with to make the gingerbread men stand out.  Some of the gingerbread men look a little drunk ha! But it’s a cute soap.


Winter Soaps: Part 1

November 6, 2017

Once again I’ve run out of hours in my day to accomplish all that needs to be done.  I’m grouping together my winter soaps instead of doing individual posts again.  I need more time in the studio right now!  I had lots of new winter soaps, and the return of many favorites. I have to stay I’m pretty pleased overall with this years soaps!

Blue Spruce

I was rather uninspired by this fragrance.  I didn’t know what to do with it so I was like let’s just do a simple two color layer.  Then as I was working it morphed and I added the reverse imprint, mica line, and peppermint leaves to the green.  I’m really happy with how this turned out.  And customers have really been liking it too!

Cranberry Fizz

This was not part of my original line up of winter soaps.  But WSP had a fall fragrance sell and I decided to get some (for next years soaps) and then I ended up smelling the ones I got and pretty much used half of them this year.  I love the colors in this soap!  And it really has a “fizz” smell.  Bubbly and fun!

Fresh Snow

This is actually a standard soap I do every winter it’s so popular, but this year I changed from my more abstract snowman to this cute guy. Found these molds the end of last year and I couldn’t pass them up.

Gingerbread

Sometimes simple works.  I love this layered look with the mica lines between each layer.  It just stands out to me.  And of course it smells yummy!


Beach Daisies

July 22, 2017

I messed up the color theme on this soap. I was making two batches and I reversed colors on the two.  It ended up a happy mistake.  I like the color themed better!

BEACH DAISIES: begins with top notes of Asian lemongrass, dune grass, and daisy petals; followed by middle notes of gardenia bloom, ylang ylang, and clove leaf; sitting on base notes of blond woods, amber sands, and sheer musk.

Top Notes: Asian lemongrass, dune grass, daisy petals
Mid Notes:  gardenia bloom, ylang ylang, clove leaf
Base Notes:  blond woods, amber sands, sheer musk

Fruitopia

July 12, 2017

I apparently was on a color kick this go around when it came to my spring soaps!

FRUITOPIA: a fruit medley of strawberries, raspberries, cherries, and tree ripe peaches squeezed with fresh lemons and essential oil of tangerine warmed by soft woods.

Look at those embeds!  Don’t they make you smile!??!?!

Available HERE!


Mandarin Tiki

July 5, 2017

I was going to attempt the butterfly swirl here, but I didn’t get my proportions right and the soap would NOT thicken up…which to effectively do a butterfly swirl I really needed it to be “not runny”.  I just did a modified swirl with it and I actually do like it, but it’s nothing at all like what I had planned to do!

MANDARIN Tiki: Is a complex aroma of mandarin rind, red currants, strawberries, and blueberries; with middle notes of watercress and palm leaves;  balanced with musky bottom notes.

Available HERE!


Peach Pie (aka Peach Nectar)

June 26, 2017

It’s been a number of years since I made pie soap and when I got the peach nectar scent I  knew I wanted to make it with my pie design again.

Peach Nectar:  fresh peach blended perfectly with a hint of the tropics create this rich, sweet, sultry scent.

Top: Peach, apple, plum, raspberry, coconut, citrus
Middle: Jasmine, violet, lily, cinnamon, clove
Base: Vanilla, caramel, tonka, musk
